Premise: Adventures of a modern day Tom Sawyer. Brandon deWilde plays Jamie, a 7 year-old whose parents have been killed, moving in with relatives. Brandon is best remembered for his appearance in the 1953 Alan Ladd Western "Shane".
Yes, Brandon flubbed his lines. They all did. And therein lies a certain charm. They knew the script and they kept it going. Ever the pro, it is great to see Brandon at work here. The sets may have been painted, but the people were real -- and it was live television. (from "So Where's Jamie?" at www.RememberingBrandon.net)
